1 - Drivers License (ok - seems fair)
2 - $350 deposit (seems high, but ok)
3 - a Utility bill (what?)
4 - an Insurnace card (no - not just the policy number, the ACTUAL card)
I had #1 and #2 above - but not #3 or #4. Who would ever think to bring those with them? I finally found the policy online but it was buried pretty deep on their website and not something I would actually look for. I have been travelling on business and personal travel for 20+ years and have never been asked for these items. So the NASTY rental agent basically said I had to pay for insurance or I couldn't have the car. So instead of the $80 that was the contract on the reservation, it would be double that amount. And I wasn't the only one they were doing this to. 2 people in front of me were also forced to pay for insurance.
Fortunately, I have the financial means to walk away and rent elsewhere. I went next door to Thrifty and they were absolutely wonderful. Yes, I paid more but they didn't require ridiculous documents and were actually NICE to their customers. It was the best service I've ever received.
I hope that someone puts Payless out of business. Or maybe they will just do that to themselves. I will never try to rent from them again AND I plan to tell everyone I know about their unfair practices. Their game is to offer a ridiculously low rate then find some loophole to ensure that the customer - once they are at the counter - has to pay for something else so that they make money on the deal.
Shame on you Payless Car Rental. Shame on you!
